Kathleen Long accompanied Jesse to the pre closing inspection, She provided excellent advice to Jesse along the way.

“ He's the best in every way”
Larry Kanarek. March 1, 2023
"There was only really one reason why we choose Jesse. We had purchased our property in 2018. At the time of viewing Jesse was present with the sellers. He was friendly, enthusiastic & knowledgeable. Over the years, we have heard his name mentioned with great regard & knew we would contact him if ever we came to sell. We are UK citizens & the sale of property is hugely different in the UK. We were novices and had no idea what to do. Jesse took care of everything, explaining along the way so we were able to understand. It made what appeared to be a very frightening process a very simple & smooth process. With Jesse, we finally learnt about the buy/ sell process and this helped tremendously. Jesse goes outside of the box to keep everyone happy. Being from the UK, we feel we may have imposed on Jesse slightly but he gave us that extra special treatment and nothing seemed too much to ask of him.
He made us feel important, as if we were the only people he was dealing with. He also did all of this through a time delay of 5hrs+. When we were sending emails late morning, it became no surprise that Jesse would respond, the time with him being around 6am!
Excellent doesn't quite cover it! Jesse just took control and that is exactly what was needed. It was smooth sailing all the way.
We should mention at the time of the sale we had verbally committed to renters until the year end. This is just another issue Jesse tackled without hesitation giving an outcome that suited all of us. It is fair to say, without Jesse we would have been lost!
We would absolutely recommend Jesse without question. Anyone thinking of selling should contact him now.

Jesse Griffin really listened to what we were looking for. He is very knowledgeable about the area, and was able to show us properties to help make the decision on what would be the perfect place for us. We were lucky to have such a great experience and would definitely use him in the future. Since we were closing and being out of state, Jesse made this process flow smoothly and without any issues. Jesse was very accommodating with us and the limited time we were in town and worked around our schedule which we appreciated! ~ Mike and Amy from Cincinnati
Jesse did a fantastic job from start to finish. Was a great counselor and mediator for us. We don't live in the area so had to trust Jesse to handle all aspects of listing, showing, and negotiating on our behalf. Jesse was extremely professional, creative, and a great communicator. I've bought and sold many homes over my lifetime and have never had a realtor as good as Jesse. He is the real deal and someone I'd highly recommend to anyone. He even went above and beyond by helping move my boat since I live out of town and wasn't able to do it myself. The level of service that Jesse provided is unheard of in this day and age.

Where do I start. We gave Jesse our parameters and Jesse gave 110% effort to our enterprise. We contacted him from California and he viewed, recommended, ruled out inferior properties, videotaped, emailed, was easy to contact by phone and generally did all of the leg work for us that we were unable to do because of proximity issues. In the end Jesse found us the perfect place on Saint Armands Key FL Jesse is very professional and knowledgeable, in his approach to managing the contract cycle as well. We highly recommend using Jesse as your real estate professional and we plan on using him again in the future. ~ William & Jeannine Halbritter Sarasota Florida
